I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Mine was busy putting on an engagement party at our house for my eldest daughter and her fiance. We had such a great time with our in-laws and sister-to-be, our friends, family, and, of course, Robert (who we all consider family anyway.)
I’d also like to thank everyone for being so wonderful about sharing both Michelle’s anti-bullying Facebook page (Make Bullying Illegal) as well as the Channeling Erik posts. If you haven’t seen Michelle’s page recently, re-visited, because she took into consideration your advice about how to use love, not punishment, to address the problem:
Now, enjoy the third (and last) segment of the John Lennon interview.
Me: What were you hear to learn and to teach?
John: I like the idea that there are stages in life. Of course, science kind of steals the light by putting labels on it such as being a baby, a child, an adolescent, and adulthood. These are the stages I’m referring to, but they’re more like the movement in a song. There’s a beginning; there’s an understanding of the rhythm of it, like gaining a familiarity of it. That’s what children do. They’re trying to find familiarity, so they’re doing a lot of repetition. Then, as an adolescent, you want to test those repetitions; you want to play all of the strings on the instrument, because your fingers are bigger, and you understand. I think in each of my stages in life, I was teaching something different, and I was learning something different. I came into the world really for others, and because of that, I really was meant for my aunt and uncle. So, I had a rough beginning learning grounding, but as I got there, I realized that it wasn’t just for the immediate family that I wanted to give; it was for a larger picture. Now, this didn’t necessarily mean, for me, the world.
John: For me, it really just meant the air around me. I had to touch the air around me. And if that air traveled around the world, then it did so.
Me: There is not doubt that it did.
John: And the opportunity that I gave was to get people to trust that the feelings they have within are right for them.
John: And to trust, not necessarily if the directions people give you are correct or not. As I was growing up, you have to understand, there were so many rules and regulations to follow. It was so disappointing. You couldn’t step one way or another without a label, without somebody saying whether it was right or wrong.
Me: I understand.
John: Whatever happened to just IS?
Me: Do you have any regrets at all?
Jamie: He said that immediately. He didn’t even pause to think.
John: I had things I did that I didn’t like, but I don’t regret them. I needed that.
Me: They were lessons unto themselves.
John: Yes. Wouldn’t it be great if everybody was granted that spontaneous knowledge of, ‘Oh! This mistake is something I needed to learn!’ or ‘Oh, this anger or outburst of hatred I had was something I needed to learn.’ But no, we tend to package it away and carry it as a mistake or a regret or a pain that we can’t resolve.
Me: Do you plan to reincarnate soon?
John: No. I want my family home with me.
Me: Oh, okay. What did you consider your proudest accomplishment this lifetime, and did that change after you crossed over?
John: My proudest accomplishment in my career was that I anchored so many people and made so many people fall in love and be happy. That accomplishment was about my waking emotions up in others. Passion. Take that in whatever direction you want, hatred or love.
Me: Ah, I see!
John: My proudest accomplishment over all was finding Yoko.
Me: Aw. And now that you’re in the spiritual realm, do you still see these as your proudest achievements?
Me: Can you share with us a past life that most influenced your last one?
(Long pause as Jamie listens)
Jamie laughs hard.
John: I like the one when I was a Tibetan monk, but I don’t really think that had much influence on this last life.
Jamie, Erik and I all laugh.
John: But it IS one of my favorites—learning the meditation techniques, how to go inward to the body to survive, finding calm and peace.
Jamie: The area he keeps showing me has really high peaks, buildings with snow. Would that be the Himalayans?
Me: Oh, yes. In Tibet? Yes.
John: That life influenced many after just because of the need for stillness and quiet, and the need to see humanity as One. So, yeah, maybe that life inspired my music the most, but, by far, I tend to resort back to that life as a fond memory.
Me: Now, from your newfound perspective, do you have any messages for humanity?
Jamie (laughing to John): You really just did that?
John (singing): All you need is Love…
Me: Aw, thank you for that, John. So true. Love is all there is.
Jamie (giggling): He’s still singing, and he wants you to sing too.
Me: He obviously hasn’t heard my voice!
Jamie, Erik, John and I all laugh.
Me: Now, is there anything else you’d like to share with the world? I really want to make sure you still have a voice. And Erik, you can chime in with your own questions, too.
John: I think I’ve said what I needed to. Thanks for giving me that chance.
Jamie (giggling): Erik!
Erik: Dude, what’s your favorite color?
John: Blue and green.
Erik: And what’s your favorite animal?
John: Aw, man! Now, that’s more difficult. I love them all! It’s not right to choose one! I love them all!
Me: That makes sense. So, Erik, is there anything else you’d like to ask Mr. Lennon?
Erik: Nah, you did a really good job, Mom.
Me: Okay, well, John, thank you so much for your time.
Jamie (giggling): He says, “ Thank YOU for your time!”
Me: And thank you for the gift you gave us in your music. You’re very loved.
John: Thank you. I can feel it. It’s really nice to have the music live on and still play.
Me: Yes, it is. Thanks so much and goodbye!
Jamie: He’s saying something to Erik. (Pause) He walked away.
Jamie (excitedly to Erik): Erik, what did he say to you?
Erik: Nothing much. It’s just between the guys.
Me: Knowing Erik, it’s probably, “How’re they hanging?”
Happy belated birthday, John!
And this song says it all:
